Georgia Perimeter College to lay off 282 workers
By The Associated Press
ATLANTA (AP) The interim leader of Georgia Perimeter College has told employees that 282 workers will be laid off.
A campus-wide email sent by Georgia Perimeter Interim President Rob Watts says the cuts affect 215 full-time employees and 67 part-time workers. The college employs about 3,110 people.
The two-year school is trying to cope with what could be a $25 million deficit next year.
State auditors are analyzing the college's financial records to understand how the school's deficit grew so large.
Georgia Perimeter is the state's third-largest public college, teaching nearly 27,000 students at sites in Alpharetta, Clarkston, Covington, Decatur and Dunwoody.
